Fruits are fibre rich and most of
them are high in Sugar themselves. While I mentioned that we prefer eating the
fruits whole, here’s the last in the Fruit Cooking Series – a simple , no brainer yet yummy recipe
that’s great for potlucks and also for those who crave for a dessert, but are
watching their weight (no! Not meL)
Apple Crumble with Almond Flour & No-sugar-added Muesli Topping. Perfect,light and very mild sugar : just what the doctor ordered after an appetizing meal. I made this single serve as we prefer it that way. You can make this in a large baking tray as well. And for those in love with Apple and Cinnamon (me , me , me :-)) this is like heaven calling out to you…
If you prefer to make it totally grain free as the original version did, skip the muesli / Oats entirely and use just almond flour. This also goes to Harini’s Fruits Theme – Kids Delight, event by Valli, and also to Blogging Marathon.
